AEW Dynamite Beats WWE NXT Again In Latest Ratings

AEW vs NXT - Wednesday Night Wars

Though they could not maintain the near-million-viewer high of last week, All Elite Wrestling once again had the beating of Wednesday night rival program WWE NXT this week.

In the most positive news for the black-and-gold brand, despite the loss this was their highest rating in three months.

The previous high was on 8th September, when NXT ran a Tuesday and were therefore unopposed by AEW.

It was also a significant increase from last week’s 659,000 viewers, which was a week when AEW hit 995,000 viewers.

Although last week’s AEW was extremely stacked (appearance by Shaq, Sting’s first interview), this is a bigger drop than many would have expected.

In the key P18-49 demographic, NXT held ground to rise slightly from 0.17 to 019.

AEW’s drop in overall ratings is also mirrored in this demographic, from 0.45 to 0.32 in a week.

Both shows will be looking for strong festive figures, with AEW announcing special attractions for their next two shows and NXT moving towards New Year’s Evil.
